I have retired!

I began my teaching career in Massachusetts in 1975 and continued to teach in NY when I moved here in 1979. Throughout my career I have taught Fashion Design, Child Psychology, Adolescent Psychology, Nutrition and Health, International Foods, Independent Living, Home Interiors and Decorating, Intro to Occupations, English and Home and Careers. My favorite courses to teach were in Fashion and Textiles.
I have decided to retire and move on to something new - but I haven't decided what that will be yet!


My Retirement Happy Hour was yesterday - and Happy Hour lasted about 8 hours!
Time to turn education over to these young teachers who are energetic, enthusiastic and fun-loving - Thanks for the fun time!!

  2. Congratulations, Patti!! I can imagine that the school is sad to see you go, not to mention your students! But I'm glad for you to have the chance to try something different. I imagine you'll do a wonderful job with any endeavor you undertake--you're so talented!

  4. Congrats!

    I'll be interested to see how you feel about it all next fall when "they" go back to school and you don't.

    That's when being out of the classroom makes me sad for about ten minutes.
